Some more advanced doodlers might have a better answer, but I say it is practice. The more you do it the more you can get your doodles even and the way you want them to look. Just start going for it!

Yup, just jump in with both feet! If they are a wee uneven that is just fine imho, as the overall effect will dominate over individual variation. I had to let go of some perfectionism to start doodling, but I think my doodled on cards look nice even though they aren't perfectly machined.

I agree. Plus, you really have to step away and then go back and look at the whole thing. While you're doing it, you are much more critical of how it looks, when in reality, it doesn't need to be perfect after all!!!

One of the magazines (unfortunately, I don't remember which one ) recently did something about doodling -- and a LSS just had a class on it so it is becoming more and more popular.

Scrapbook Answers did a feature on doodling recently, as did another mag I glanced at but don't normally buy so I don't remember which one.

Honestly, I am not an expert doodler...I did it for the first time the other night on a card (the link is below) but I practiced on scratch paper first. I did long figure eights and then added hash marks in th middle of each line. But what I found to help the most was the type of pen I used. That makes a huge difference in the flow of your doodling. I used a black VBall Grip Pilot pen with an extra fine tip. It was very smooth and easy flowing. Also, I think the doodling looks better if it isn't perfectly done....it is doodling. Just my two cents.
